This chapter focuses on the charter of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). It explains that the report of the Crawford Committee was published on March 5, 1926 and on July 14 the Postmaster-General officially announced that its main recommendations were accepted by the government. It describes the press and parliamentary reactions to the report and suggests that the views in the press were more critical of the Post Office than of the BBC.
